You was more than just a sister to me you was my heart ❤️. Trinity and I never imagined life without you. I wish this was just a dream. U always looked out for me and trin. I will never forget the times u helped me study for an exam or helped me do my projects. U stayed on me to always get nothing less than a “B”. Well sis I did it I graduated and even though u couldn’t be there I know u we’re proud of me and ur smile said it all . You encouraged me to be the best mom I can be. And u always would say ‘ I’m out of control’ Trinity said she’s gonna miss the hugs and kisses she got when she came home from school and the arguments about her finishing her homework. I will never forget you sis u will always be in my heart. Rest on and don’t worry about mommy I promise to look after her and make sure she’s ok. I love u forever.
Love your baby sister Latricia.
